Baby Hercules Posted September 11, 2010 Share Posted September 11, 2010 I'm a nature girl, a wild child. If I don't get outside every day, I get a little tense. If I don't go hiking at least once a week, I get a little twitchy. And it's not really a hike for me unless there's sweating, dirt, rock, danger, altitude, and maybe even a little bleeding as well. I've hiked in 100+ heat, blizzards, pouring rain, lightning storms, and the dead of night. I've seen bears, eagles, coyotes, deer, elk, moose, rattlesnakes, Black Widows, and slugs eleven inches long. Haven't seen Sasquatch or a cougar yet but I've got my fingers crossed. I've found gem quality smokey quartz, mahogany obsidian, and aquamarine. I've climbed 23 of the tallest mountains in the contiguous 48 states, some of them more than once, most of them solo, none of them with ropes. My goal is to witness an erupting volcano, a minor earthquake, and a tsunami--all from a safe distance, of course, and preferably not all on the same hike. But it could happen. Do you hike? Where do you go? What have you seen? Baby Herc PS: My latest outdoor adventure is at the link in blue below. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
